Pirelli confirms tire choice from Spain through Austria


Pirelli has confirmed the tire choices for the next four Grands Prix, with its softest compound, the supersoft, making an appearance at three of the four races.

As in Malaysia, Pirelli will go with the medium and hard compounds at the Spanish Grand Prix, to account for the track’s high corner loads  and high degradation.

From the Monaco Grand Prix though through the Canadian and Austrian Grands Prix, Pirelli will shift from its two hardest compounds to its two softest compounds, the supersoft and the soft compounds.

Pirelli’s soft and medium compounds were used in Australia, China and Bahrain.

Here’s the breakdown:

  • Spain: P Zero White medium (option), P Zero Orange hard (prime)
  • Monaco: P Zero Red supersoft (option), P Zero Yellow soft (prime)
  • Canada: P Zero Red supersoft (option), P Zero Yellow soft (prime)
  • Austria: P Zero Red supersoft (option), P Zero Yellow soft (prime)
